Chrome OS to get business-grade edition

Google Chrome OS logoAt the RSA Conference on Thursday, a Google software security engineer said that Google will out a business version of its Chrome OS Netbook operating system in 2011, after the consumer version is released later this year. Will Drewry also revealed the software will have a number of integrated security technologies that will protect users from malware and other threats. All versions will include Trusted Platform Module (TPM) hardware, which will ensure key storage security and multi-factor authentication.

Drewry says the Google Chrome OS has auto-updating and sandbox features to reduce malware exposure and will warn users when they come upon a website that is known to have malware. A developer mode can be turned on thanks to a switch under the battery, which would sacrifice the embedded security in favor of freedom to browse wherever one wishes. It's meant to give developers the range to play with the open source code in order to come up with new ideas and apps.

The enterprise version of the netbook would reportedly have the kind of functions businesses seek.
